The exhibition is open from 10am to 4.30pm (last admission 4pm) and costs 300 yen to visit. Proceeds will be donated to the Tōhoku Earthquake Releif Funds.

Denpoin Temple Garden will be quite a contrast to the hustle and bustle of Nakamise shopping street as you will see from the results of this Google image searh.
sounds interesting....
